5:15 am
happens. but again avoid the nimitz through oakland. just beyond the shot is where the accident occurred. it's molding back traffic that normally travels along southbound 880. that would be the headlights so still wide open for the southbound 880 drive leaving the coliseum bound for hayward. and the other big problems we have been talking about is in half moon bay, highway 1 approaching martins beach road involving that car that went down the ravine. we do have crews on the way. in fact, there is a rescue in progress at this hour with traffic control in the area. we're hearing that at least one person is trapped in his vehicle. there is that rescue in progress highway 1 at half moon bay approaching martins beach road. the bay bridge commute leaving oakland heading into san francisco still wide open with very light traffic at the toll plaza. that's a look at "kcbs traffic." now to lawrence. low clouds, fog, a little drizzle outside this morning. the roadways may be slick if you are headed out the door. hi-def doppler radar so far fairly quiet now but i think things change toward the
5:16 am
afternoon. you can see the skies clear of rain. just to the north still looks like we'll begin to see things change and you already see a couple of light showers developing off the coastline. looks like we are going to see more of that on the way though as we head into the afternoon. before you know it maybe a little rain falling overnight tonight and into tomorrow. so as we head throughout the day today, there's still a chance of sprinkles mainly to the north then a chance of rain for the rest of the bay area over the next few days. some much-needed rain possibly headed to the bay area. not going to be a drought breaker. if we see .10" half inch in some of the wettest spots in the north bay that would be good. how about this by the afternoon? whole ridge of high pressure is going to break down so that's going to allow the jet stream to start to sag to the south. that means a better chance for rain developing for us a little bit later on. around the state, rain in far northern shower, showers late in the day in the sacramento valley. high country haven't seen this for a while, winter storm warnings going up there upwards of two feet of snow above 8,000 feet or so. at lake level by tomorrow morning a half foot. that would be nice to see.
5:17 am
haven't seen much snow in the sierra at all this year. chance of scattered showers as we head throughout the day mainly to the north and then as we get into the afternoon and evening hours the whole front sags on through bringing a chance of rain for everybody through tonight and into early tomorrow morning. temperatures not bad. you will see a lot of 60s outside so running above the average and 50s toward the coastline. your sunrise today 7:16. your sunset at 5:30. the unsettled weather continuing today and into tomorrow. it looks like a dry day for the most part on friday. another slight chance of showers near the coastline sunday. but this could be the most significant rain event overnight tonight into tomorrow morning. >> of the year. >> of the year, really. the year so far. >> yeah. that's good. >> it's amazing. >> we need it. all right, lawrence, thank you. >> thank you, lawrence. 5:17. the latest winter storm is too much for the city of atlanta. hundreds of students spent the night stuck at school and they're still there this morning. almost 3" of snow fell in the southern city yesterday. it clogged up roads, turned highways into parking lots.
5:18 am
they are not used to this. driving conditions so bad stuck at schools, churches and even grocery stores. >> we are sending state troopers, members of our georgia state patrol, to each of the schools where children are still there. and it is anticipated that in some of those schools, some of the children will probably spend the night there. >> people are blocking the intersection and getting out of their cars and walking. >> well, the storm slammed states from texas to north carolina. at least 6 states in the south right now under emergency. if the city won't do it a new group of activists said they will hand out free crack pipes on the streets of san francisco. the director of the tenderloin- based urban survivors union says volunteers will start passing out 50 to 100 crack pipes a day in march. last week, city leaders told kpix 5 they were strongly against a formal recommendation that a free crack pipe program
5:19 am
could help stop the spread of hiv. >> hiv can manifest itself nava right of ways. we don't know the entire lifestyle of the crack user. that's why we're doing this. we want to get to know people. we want to know what they're doing. they could be part of the mix of why our rates are not going down. >> crack pipes are illegal because they are drug paraphernalia. the urban survivors union says they are prepared to risk jail. time now 5:19. david beckham's back for another super bowl ad. how the hunky soccer star is giving us a peek into the future of online shopping. >> and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, you're not going to believe it! i have a richard sherman update. and the president's speech must inspired the washington wizard against the warriors. straight ahead. ,, ,,,,,,,,,, when you have diabetes like i do,

5:30 am
hospital. anne? >> reporter: one of those dogs is on the loose likely somewhere here in golden gate park. that is what we just heard from a police officer who says other officers are stationed around looking for that pit bull named cleo. it all started here in this grove on 25th and lincoln in golden gate park. the other dog that was involved in this attack was shot and killed by police last night. the dogs were owned by a man who set up camp here and then left his friend alone with the dogs while he ran an errand. about 10:30 last night the dogs turned on that friend attacking him. the owner came back and he was bitten on the leg, as well. police arrived. >> they tried to bring animal control out to put a noose around the dogs. that has failed. so the police came in and basically like a firing line
5:31 am
and so the dog just kept going further into the park and coming back and so the second time that they came back and the black dog looked close enough and was sitting on the table when the policeman shot him. >> reporter: this describes a lot of screaming as well during the event last night. one man was taken to the hospital. he is described as being in stable condition this morning. and the other man, the dog's owner, was bitten on the leg refused treatment and apparently is going to be fine. live in golden gate park, anne makovec, kpix 5. rain, it's acomin' finally, huh? >> can you believe it? maybe the most significant storm we have seen like frank mentioned all year so far. looks like a chance of showers headed our way. haven't seen it yet. we have seen fog and low clouds and drizzle. dense fog. so be careful out the door. hi-def doppler radar is looking for some rain outside. it's going to make its way

5:33 am
traffic approaching the scene. it's backed up from 980. oakland's a tough spot this morning. we have an accident where a car was originally traveling in the eastbound direction of highway 24, flipped over, overturned and ended up in westbound traffic. right now that car is resting in westbound lanes. highway 24 just beyond highway 13. the left lane partially shut down and you can see it's not doing much to slow down traffic heading through there so those are the hot spots. we have better news for half moon bay. that's where we have been telling but that car that went down the ravine. the rescue is complete. the person in the car had minor injuries. there is traffic control in the area southbound 1 approaching martins beach road in half moon bay. that's your "kcbs traffic." now to frank. >> thank you, liza. san francisco investigators disagree with the san mateo county coroner's report on how a teenager died at sfo last july. kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran is in the newsroom. that report has different cause of death for one of the
5:34 am
passengers. >> reporter: it does. it's san francisco's version's of the crash investigation. one of the revelations that people will be talking about today is that report claims the 16-year-old victim was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash. following the asiana plane crash san francisco city admits the city firefighters ran over ye meng yaun twice but in the new report filed with the ntsb the city attorney denies she was still alive at the time of the roll overdespite what the san mateo county coroner says. >> multiple blunt injuries that are consistent with being run over by a motor vehicle. those injuries she received she was alive at the time. >> reporter: in its new report the city says if she were alive, how come the coroner found no dust, dirt, debris or firefighting foam in the trachea or lung tissues of the
5:35 am
deceased? if she were alive, the city says, she would have breathed in one or more of those items. the city also notes that she was ejected from the plane just like two other passengers who were right next to her both of whom died. >> san francisco is saying that the san mateo county coroner's decision is faulty. >> reporter: attorney jerry gold shoal says the city is likely building its defense against the wrongful death lawsuit already filed by the girl's family. >> that the girl was already dead. therefore, that as tragic as it was that her body was mutilated by the fire engine, the fire engines did not cause her death. and therefore, she has no claim against the city and county of san francisco. >> reporter: the question of how she died could be answered by a jury if case gets that far but goldsholle says it's likely the case will be settled. cate caugiran, kpix 5. the family of a bay area woman who just died from the flu is urging people to get

ground and lived to talk about it. her chute opened only halfway and she began to rotate out of control. >> they got on the radio on the ground, the guy on the radio on the ground is trying to talk her out of what's going on and telling her what to do and she can't. she can't do it. >> mackenzie is in icu. she suffered a broken pelvis, vertebrae in her lower back, shoulder blade and several ribs. she is going to be okay. it was her sweet sixteen birthday and you would never think something like that would happen. >> good to here she's going to be okay. >> yeah. time now 5:44. liza? >> it's been busy. most of the accidents we have been seeing have been concentrated in the east bay. mostly in oakland. so we are going to start off with this problem in oakland. southbound 880 just beyond the 980. two lanes blocked. all lanes were blocked to put a

big rig tow truck in place. now it's down to 36 miles per hour in the area. there is an accident in the backup. along highway 24 there was a car traveling eastbound somehow spun out flipped over the center divider and ended up in westbound traffic. so you're going to see this accident westbound 24 beyond 13. it's in the center divider at this hour. it's also a long morning for the altamont pass. you can see all of the yellow there. traffic speeds are down westbound 580. 580/680 interchange room to head through the pleasanton area but gummed up through livermore leaving the altamont pass. half moon bay, we had been watching this accident involving that car off the ravine. the rescue is now complete. they were able to take out the injured party. highway 1 at martins beach there is still traffic control in the area southbound. but cars are able to get through there also on the frontage road.
5:46 am
that's a look at "kcbs traffic." now to lawrence. there's also dense fog at the coastline and oversky line boulevard. we are waiting for rain. hi-def doppler radar is looking toward the skies. fairly quiet at this time. we are looking to the north seeing scattered light showers near cloverdale and off the coastline. not seeing things picking up until later in the day. a lot of clouds outside today, chan of sprinkles to the north throughout the day. then rain develops tonight and into tomorrow for the rest of the bay area. cloudy skies rain to the north held up by this ridge of high pressure but that ridge going to start to weaken and break down and as it does the jet stream drops in and yeah, we are going to see much-needed rain showing up outside around the bay area. not the biggest storm we have ever seen but a much-needed rain event regardless. temperatures around the state you will see 60s and 70s in the central valley. more rain further to the north. if you plan to head to the high country, we have winter storm
5:47 am
warning in effect later on tonight could see upwards of two feet of snow across the higher sierra nevada. by the time you wake up tomorrow morning, could see 6" of snow lake level at tahoe. computer models showing clouds continuing to work their way across our skies, chance of showers on and off and rain tonight into early tomorrow morning and cold front through the bay area. so chance of rain for everyone overnight tonight and early tomorrow morning. temperatures going to stay fairly mild. 50s and some 60s right now. your sunrise time 7:16. sunset 5:30. and looking out over the next few days, got rain in the forecast. drying out friday and saturday. a few showers sunday. it's hard to believe we haven't had hardly any rainfall and fire danger is still a concern. roberta gonzales is in sunol with mobile weather. >> reporter: it's overcast and light drizzle due to the condensation from the fog not an area of low pressure pushing through. it's fog producing the drizzle
5:48 am
but the visibility still at 10 miles. we are here at fire station 14. they are located in sunol and to give you a little bit of proximity, sunol is roughly a rural community of 1,000 people to the south of fremont, to the north is pleasanton, to the northeast is livermore. but this is a very important fire station playing a very important role. to tell us more about that we have captain duffy. thank you for getting up with this morning. >> no problem. >> reporter: you are receiving as far as your unit is concerned additional staffing due to the very dry drought conditions. >> right now, we have the lack of rainfall, we're basically conditions that we have in the summertime. so with that we are bringing on additional firefighters, we are bringing back seasonal firefighters. they were laid off for a short period and now we're bringing them back very unusual for this time of year. >> reporter: exactly. so fire season has never ended here in the bay area? >> it really hasn't. it hasn't ended. we're in conditions right now that we could be in the middle of summer. >> reporter: so here in the east bay, this particular area
5:49 am
consists a lot of agriculture, farmers, ranchers. any concerns? >> well, absolutely. there's a perfect interface. there's houses. so you have to protect those homes. you have a problem. >> reporter: is there anything i can do, anybody watching this interview at this particular time to protect their homes? >> right now you want to treat it like it is fire season. so if you want to clear some brush or anything around your property, you want to do that in the morning hours when it's cooler. if you are using power equipment, take that into consideration. >> reporter: this is odd because usually we are saying clean out the gutters this time of year but instead clear your landscaping. for more information visit us online at kpix for words are bringing 9er nation together heading into super bowl sunday. >> anyone but the seahawks. that's become the catch phrase taking over the bay area. kpix 5's kiet do met up with

[ screaming at the top of his lungs ] >> i looked at my boys and my husband and i said, anybody but the seahawks. that's what came out of my mouth, anybody but the seahawks, because i didn't want his behavior to be validated. >> reporter: the catch phrase was born in seconds. the design took a few hours, printing two days but the rivalry will go on for years. at first they had go broncos on the bottom but her son convinced her to take it off so
5:51 am
9ers fans could wear it all year long. would you say the t-shirt is passive-aggressive? >> slightly. that was probably passive- aggressive answer. but -- [ laughter ] >> reporter: they are now selling 250 t-shirts a day both at her store out of the envelope in los gatos, and online at where else, for this mother of 7 kids, the t-shirts are a way of getting payback. >> when you have 6 sons and some of them were bullied, it really affected me and when this hit me on sunday after the game, it took me back to when my kids were younger and i said, not okay. not okay. not okay. [ laughter ] >> genius, right? [ laughter ] >> cracks me up. >> they are going to sell like hotcakes. >> imagine that. >> everyone hates the seahawks here. >> don't wear them in seattle. you're in deep trouble. will you order a few? >> no. well, yeah. >> i would hope. >> i don't want the seahawks to win, either. >> all right. if you would like to order
5:52 am
anyone but the seahawks shirts, go to for link. i would hope you would be wearing one. >> i'd wear it. the queen of england is spending too much money at least her advisors say so. >> buckingham palace and other royal residences are in need of serious repair but critics say the money is just not there because the queen's advisors are mismanaging funds. >> windsor castle problem with the bedrooms and the royal picture gallery all too often they have buckets because of the water coming through. >> so many for living like royalty. one suggestion is to open buckingham palace more often to paying visitors when the queen is not at home. 5:52. coming up, goes retro. does it get passengers attention with a blast from the past? >> probably the same odds as the mega millions. >> fisherman up in tahoe solved
